Whenever the school holidays are around the corner, children demand an outing! Even though it’s a wonderful opportunity to spend some time together, many of us believe it’s a mess to plan a trip along with a kid (or kids). In this scenario, our nightmare would be to reach a destination where children aren’t safe or more awful – bored! Isn’t that so? But it’s untrue when you decide to stay at kids-friendly resorts. Staycation at these resorts is an ideal gateway to have a fabulous time with your kids without worrying about their security and enjoying to the fullest.
